Kilinc, Ahmet; Kelly, Thomas; Eroglu, Baris; Demiral, Umit; Kartal, Tezcan; Sonmez, Arzu; Demirbag, Mehmet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For science teachers using the discourse of socioscientific issues (SSI), it is important to make a decision as to whether when and how to disclose their own positions. The existing limited literature shows that science teachers prefer one of four roles during SSI discourse: sticker to facts, imposer, democracy advocator, and committed…

Osman, Enja; BouJaoude, Saouma; Hamdan, Hiba – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Lebanese educators claim that middle and secondary school students exhibit poor understanding of genetics due to misconceptions and difficulties that hinder progression in conceptual understanding of major genetics concepts and phenomena across different grade levels. They attributed these problems to Lebanon's ill-structured genetics curriculum…

Miheso-O'Connor Khakasa, Marguerite; Berger, Margot – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT), defined by Ball ("Elementary Journal," 93, 373-397, 1993) as knowledge that is needed to teach mathematics, has been used as a framework by researchers to interrogate various aspects of teaching and learning mathematics. In this article, which draws from a larger study, we show how an in-depth…

Lin, Kuen-Yi; Williams, P. John – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study applies the theory of planned behavior as a basis for exploring the impact of knowledge, values, subjective norms, perceived behavioral controls, and attitudes on the behavioral intention toward science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education among Taiwanese preservice science teachers. Questionnaires (N = 139)…

Alhendal, Dalal; Marshman, Margaret; Grootenboer, Peter – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
To improve the quality of education, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Education has encouraged schools to implement inquiry-based instruction. This study identifies psychosocial factors that predict teachers' intention to use inquiry-based instruction in their science classrooms. An adapted model of Ajzen's (1985) theory of planned behaviour--the Science…

Khishfe, Rola; BouJaoude, Saouma – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Students' attitudes and conceptions seem to be influenced by social/cultural contexts and interactions with other students from diverse backgrounds. Therefore, educators need to study attitudes, conceptions, and career choices in relation to diversity indicators. Such was one focus of the Science Education for Diversity project, which involved…
